WaterLab members are leaders in their own practice areas and bring expertise, wisdom, and insight to the discussion of water challenges in the Pacific Northwest and in North American. Through quarterly meetings with PureBlue, they inform our priorities and approaches. We work together to find those places and actions where PureBlue’s leverage can make a difference.

A major priority is to design and articulate a long-term vision for water innovation based on geographic, organizational, challenge, and end user contexts. And to identify the best role for PureBlue within that vision. Representative topics include:

  1. Prioritizing the critical water related issues impacting Puget Sound’s public health, economic vitality, environmental assets and quality of life.
  2. Assessing the economic growth and job creation potential of water innovation, entrepreneurship and market opportunities.
  3. Connecting water research centers to a meaningful commercialization process.
  4. Adjusting the regulatory environment to remove barriers and provide incentives for improved clean water solutions.
  5. Developing the skilled workforce to support developers of water technologies and end-users.
  6. Integrating multiple sources of data on water resources, quality and infrastructure.
  7. Identifying sources of funding including non-traditional and blended financing mechanisms and public-private partnerships.
  8. Addressing public understanding of water challenges and methods of communication, education and outreach.
  9. Collaborating with water clusters outside the Puget Sound Region to minimize duplication, time and cost of solutions

Solving water challenges requires collaborative action.
